We doubt you wouldn't recognize the most popular Sanrio character ever—Hello Kitty. But aside from the most famous fictional cat on the planet, there are load others from Sanrio that are just as aggressively adorable as Miss Kitty White. And in case you're wondering what on earth a Sanrio is, let us clear it up for you. Sanrio is a Japanese company that designs, licenses and produces products focusing on the kawaii (cute) segment of Japanese culture. Think of them as the Japanese equivalent of Lisa Frank.
From a clothing line to its very own Sanrio World in Japan, the kawaii craze does not stop there. But why stop at Sanrio stationery, bags, and mobile apps? Some fans just can't get enough of these über cute critters that they decided to let Hello Kitty and the gang dominate their skin as well. Can't blame them!
Even singer Katy Perry has her fair share of kawaii tattoos with this Hello Kitty tattoo by the lovely Alex Strangler.
